Randy, this is your time to shine!

I've heard that NOAA can't make a true estimate of the effects of this year's el nino until they get more water temp readings in November.

Did somebody say "El Nino?"

The winter outlook according to NOAA would lead us to believe there is a 50% or greater chance that our winter in the upper midwest will be warmer than normal. That outlook is based primarily on the developing El Nino. Like DH said, it'll depend a lot on how the el nino develops over the next couple months. Receiving the first snow and cold plunge earlier than normal is something that tends to happen frequently in el nino events, so for now things are falling into place, but...

While I believe their scientists know a whole lot more than I do about weather, I don't buy long range forecasts and I'm not sold that this year's ice fishing season will be a stinker.

Just my 2 cents.

I won't be too upset if we do have another January like last winter. That made for some good winter trout fishing conditions.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
